Van Heijningen Directing Army of the Dead


Warner Bros. has signed commercial director and visual artist Matthijs van Heijningen to make his feature directing debut on Army of the Dead, an action thriller that takes place in zombie-infested Las Vegas.

Variety says the studio will co-finance the film with Village Roadshow Pictures. Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder produce under their WB-based Cruel & Unusual Films.

The script by Joby Harold (writer and director of Awake) focuses on a father who tries to save his daughter from certain death in a zombie-ridden Sin City.
